Wooddell quits as building inspector

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

Platte City will have to find a new building inspector/codes enforcement officer.

Tom Wooddell submitted his resignation last week to be effective Wednesday, May 14.

Keith Moody, city administrator, said the city is currently taking applications for a new building inspector/codes enforcement officer. Moody said the position could be open between two and four weeks, depending on the number of applications and qualified candidates for the position.

Moody said Wooddell will also continue to work for Platte City during the evening until a replacement is hired.

The employment ad from the city lists the duties of the building inspector/code enforcement officer as, “building plan review, building permit issuance, inspection of structural, mechanical, plumbing and electrical work for compliance with International Building Codes. Position is also responsible for enforcing City Zoning Ordinances and abatement of nuisance violations.”

The ad also says the applicant must have an “associate's degree in construction technology, or two years experience in building inspection.”

The pay range for the position is listed between $17.25 and $22.85 per hour depending on the person's experience.

Wooddell is resigning to take a position as a building inspector with the City of Riverside.

A phone call to Wooddell seeking comment was not returned before deadline.
